Body Brave Essentials Program

The Essentials Program is designed for those struggling with body image, disordered eating, and eating disorders. 

This program is focused on skill-building, behavioural change and insight development. This is not intended as treatment but rather as support and guidance. It is not a substitute for treatment. 

The program will guide participants through 8 modules addressing symptom management, thoughts, emotions & behaviours, distress tolerance, interpersonal skills, as well as goal setting and building a happier, healthier life. Skills come from the evidence-based practices of DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) as well as meditation, mindfulness and gentle yoga. 

Groups are co-facilitated by family doctor and trained psychotherapist Dr. Karen Trollope and eating disorder survivor and peer support worker, Sonia Seguin. Each participant will also receive 4 individual psychotherapy sessions with Dr. Karen Trollope to express concerns, work through individual issues and delve deeper. 

The program is limited to 8 participants to keep groups intimate and to maximize individual attention. 

When: September 26- November 25th
